David Hockney’s swimming pool paintings are among the most popular pictorial icons of the 1960s. He became famous the world over as a chronicler of the Californian way of life. His portraits, still lifes and photo collages have also contributed to the fact that, for several decades, he has been regarded as one of the most important contemporary artists. But that is not all. His latest, enormously fresh and bold works have a surprise in store. Among these works are his magnificent landscape paintings – most of which have been painted en plein air – and his screen drawings which have been created using the touch screen of a smartphone. His new works also include multi-focal films which create a unique viewing experience by showing images on 18 monitors which are joined together. –
